About

Dragon Bros is a 2D, retro pixel art run and gun game. Solo or co-op, play as a young Dragon armed with a plasma gun! 5 different difficulty levels to adapt it to the type of experience you enjoy the most: easily smash hundreds of mindless robots or accept the challenge of a real retro hard-core shooter.

 

 

 

  • A smooth and fresh interpretation of classic Run and Gun games,
  • Solo or local co-op up to 2 players,
  • Tons of enemies to blow up, 
  • Gorgeous pixel art,  
  • Loads of weapons with alternative firing modes,  
  • Punchy soundtrack with old school tunes,  
  • Far too many explosions,
  • Higher difficulty modes for an extra challenge,  
  • Full controller support,   
  • 2 players on one keyboard support,  
  • Hyper responsive controls and non stop action, 
  • Special retro inspired bonus levels (pang , space invaders, etc),
  • Rhythm levels.

 

 

There is a dozen kind of enemies. Some are just shooting at you, others lob at you, some fly around and drop bombs, some have a shield in front of them, some fly and shoot, some are slow but very resistant, some are sniping you, some punch you etc. Use the map to travel freely through already completed levels and improve your previous high score. You can collect power ups along the track (machine gun, super laser, naval cannon, shotgun, etc.). Every act of destruction rewards you with scraps (score). Use them to unleash your weapon super powers for a few seconds: bigger bullets, bouncy projectiles, increased range, higher damage, larger splash area, secondary effects, etc!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dragon Bros is in early access on Steam at the moment. The game has got a very solid core already in place and we are now working on adding contents and further improving certain game-play aspects. We are receiving a lot of positive feedback and some valuable suggestion that will really help the game shine. We would love to keep working on the project for as long as it needs, but our resources are very limited. We need your support to add all the extra contents we would love to include in Dragon Bros.

In particular, the money raised from the campaign would be used to:

  • add levels to be able to include branching in the map,
  • increase the variety of enemies,
  • add special bonus level with different game play mechanics, inspired by classic retro games like Space Invaders, Arkanoid and Pang,
  • implement extra weapons with more unique shooting style,
  • implement extra boss fights.

Risks and challenges

Dragon Bros is already in early access, polished and fun but lacking some more contents. We have lots of ideas and feedback from the community we would like to implement in the game but our resources are very limited. We are asking for your support to extend the development of Dragon Bros and give us the chance to release the best game we can make!

We are offering you the possibilities to design new enemies, weapons, levels and bosses with us. You and us! Even if we feel confident about our capabilities and the versatility of our current engine, we understand it could be challenging to satisfy some of the request in the scheduled time frame, depending on the complexity of the suggested design.
We will try our best to find a solution that works for both you and the game.
